Sophie and the Heidelberg Cat

By Andrew Wilson, Illustrated by Helena Perez Garcia

This book, meant to be read aloud to children ages 4–7, communicates rich theology to a young audience through a conversation between a guilty child and a talking cat. Sophie, a little girl upset after disobeying her parents, learns the basics of the gospel of grace from a neighborhood cat through a conversation based on the first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism: What is your only comfort in life and in death? That I am not my own, but belong . . . to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. Interweaving accessible truths with whimsical illustrations and engaging rhymes, this book will help children and parents alike understand grace in a fresh way.
